2.5/5 84% Detroit (2017) Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal are to be commended for tackling important and pertinent stories, but Detroit is a mixed bag. In your face filmmaking packs a wallop but ultimately sheds no new light on the race war in America 50 years later.‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily

5/5 93% Dunkirk (2017) Dunkirk manages to be a stirring , yet intimate epic all at the same time. At its core though it is a gripping thriller that is unlike anything I have ever seen in this genre, a bravura triumph for Christopher Nolan.‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily

61% Despicable Me 3 (2017) Even if a whole feature film of Minions was a bit too much of a good thing, having them back in a choice supporting role is just the right tonic.‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
